HBO Max next month (May 2022) plans to add 108 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including several season and show premieres.

The new titles will include the season two premiere of Hacks, the HBO Max original comedy starring Jean Smart as a legendary comedienne whose stardom has faded but is boosted by a plucky sidekick, played by Hannah Einbinder; The Staircase, the HBO original series (based on real life events) starring Colin Firth as writer Michael Peterson who’s accused of murdering his wife (Toni Collette); and the series premiere of The Time Traveler’s Wife, an HBO original sci-fi series starring Rose Leslie and Theo James as a couple whose marriage is complicated by time traveling.

Also notable: The Matrix Resurrections, the fourth installment in the sci-fi saga starring Keanu Reeves as a body-bending hacker named Neo who fights evil in alternative worlds. The movie will be available in 4K HDR as well as Dolby Atmos.
